Hi all,

I got the following GA error when doing EOMEA-CCSD calculation. It seems my available GA space is not large enough. Is there a way to change the size of the available GA space?

Thanks,
Yuan

Thanks. Still don't understand where global array is. Does it use the space in "global" when I'm allocating the memory, or somewhere else? So when I'm setting memory like "memory stack ** heap ** global ** mb", am I telling the program some information about global array allocation? From the quote above, how to allocate global array seems depending on the machines architecture --- distributed memory or shared memory.

Yes, in the memory allocation global refers to the memory available to global arrays. So an allocation such as

memory stack 500 mb heap 100 mb global 1300 mb

would allocate 1300 MB to global arrays. As far as the dependence on machine architecture, you do not need to worry about it. If you are on a shared memory machine, then you will get what you specify. If you are on a distributed memory machine, the code will essentially ignore the partitioning between memory segments (the total memory allocated is all that is really important in this case) and global arrays can use as much memory as is not in use by stack/heap.
